Lesson 2 - SPaG

Step 1

Open the document at the bottom of the page called "Strange Creature"

Yes I know you've already seen this, but it's a good idea to remind yourselves, isn't it?

Step 2

Look at the sentences where we see what different people were saying about the creature. Can you remember what all the punctuation is for?

Here is a sentence which contains some speech from Miss Hickens.

I have highlighted all the important parts of the sentence in green. What is the purpose of each of these parts?

Step 3

Play the YouTube video called "How to Punctuate Direct Speech"

Some of you may have seen this video before, but it could be helpful with this lesson.

Step 4

Open the document at the bottom of the page called "Speech Examples"

Follow the instructions carefully and punctuate the sentences correctly.

Challenge Task                           Extra Information

An Important Person - Part 1

This is the first part of a challenge which will last this week and next.

For this part, I want you to find out about someone who is important to you. They could be a family member, but they don't have to be.

They could be important to you or to the community in which they live.

Find out basic facts like their name, age and where they were born.

Make a note of this information and keep it safe.

If you can solve the problem, email me with the answer. My email address is on the 4RS homepage.


Or you could click here to go to the Ask Mr Smailes page and fill in the contact form.


Or you could ask your parents to use Class Dojo to send it through to me.
